The world can sometimes be a cruel place filled with a lot of cruel people.

That’s why it feels good that every once in a while, you get to hear great stories that, as they say on the interwebs, restores your faith in humanity.

Such as this one about a firefighter and a terribly burned puppy.

Bill Lindler is a firefighter by profession and one day, he noticed that there was “some smoke coming from my neighbor’s yard.” He immediately grabbed his firefighting gear at home and then saved Jake, a 3-week-old dog who’s been trapped in the blaze.

Thanks to Bill, Jake’s life has been spared. The puppy, however, suffered burns of up to 75% of his body, including his paw pads. What makes his story sadder though is that his owners decided to abandon him at the vet after the incident. They said they couldn’t afford to pay for his needed care.

When Bill heard about it, he once again came to rescue the poor pooch. He and his family decided to adopt Jake.
